However, I had been thinking of a way to turn the traditional apple crisp that uses wheat flour into a healthy version, and I indeed managed to create the most incredibly delicious apple crumble topping for an oatmeal I ate the other day. I'm so excited to share the recipe! It is beyond easy.
For the oatmeal:
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut milk (I use canned) + 3/4 cup water
1/2 apple, diced
1 banana, mashed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
For the crumble:
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tbsp coconut palm sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Add coconut milk, water and oats to saucepan and simmer over low-medium heat. Add diced apple and ground cinnamon, stir.
Add mashed banana to saucepan. While oatmeal is thickening, in small bowl mix coconut oil, ground flaxseed, coconut sugar and cinnamon with fork until you reach a crumbly texture.
Once oatmeal is finished cooking, add to bowl and top with crumble mixture. Add a few sliced apples and you're done! Enjoy!
